majorities sensible and strengthening the current gun laws. what they support, 82% of gun owners, 72% of members actually support universal background checks. we are trying to keep guns and weapons out of the hands of dangerous people, criminals, and the seriously mentally ill. when you talk to people in west virginia, gun owners themselves want to be able to have guns in their homes. they also want to ensure that those guns do not fall into the hands of people who should not have them. the other constituency that is important is law enforcement. they are unanimous in their support for assault weapon ban for capacity magazines and closing loopholes. host: gun control could split obama, reid. they say backing restrictions could hurt the senate leader and other democrats. this story points out that for some democrats up for reelection, supporting the president will be treacherous terrain. they go on to talk about facing reelection battles in states where gun control is politically unpopular making potential votes on the proposals problematic. what might the strategy be at your organiza
the federal government have a law regarding that but i think each individual state should enact a legislative negligence act that if you don't fulfill that responsibility of having a budget, you do not get paid and you get barred from running for future elective office. with regard to the debt ceiling, here we go again. the republican party, if it goes along with this deal in my opinion ought to change its name to the caveman party and boehner and mcconnell would be the cavemen in chief, because every time we come to this debt ceiling what do the republicans do? they give in. and every amount of money that this country spends is showing it's unsustainable. we've got to reform them and get our budget in order and we've got to get our spending under control. host: lori who is one of the 65 people on facebook who has commented on this this morning says that this makes the seventh debt ceiling plays the obama's term while the democratically-controlled senate hasn't passed a budget. it seems silly -- logical to me at but he'll -- by the way, it gives an advertisement to our plans for inauguration
, the house pass a budget, senate pass a budget, as required by law and on time. so as i've talked to them, i feel pretty good about the constitutionality of the 27th amendment and how it applies to this. i would, if i could, make a couple other comments. i do think it's interesting in the spirit of bipartisanship, as you've pointed out, this was a piece of legislation for the most part pretty much mirrors what was introduced in the 112th with -- by a democrat with several other democratic co-sponsors as well as republicans here. i sort of feel like this is an effort at a bipartisan -- bipartisanship. i know sandy had to leave. we were talking about the ratings agencies and what debate. reading the executive management report from the ratings agency that also pointed to the congress that one of the reasons -- huge reason for the downgrade, they didn't feel that the congress had the political will to address the spending crisis that we are in either. so that was also a big part of the downgrade of our credit rating. now i think, you know, we are trying to exercise the political will to address
for this short-term extension is to just get congress to actually follow the law that congress wrote in 1974 which is to pass a budget by april 15. we're not saying what kind of budget they have to pass. just pass a budget. reason is the senate is going on four years now for not having passed a budget. we think this gives us the time we need in this nation to have a good thorough, vigorous and honest debate of what it takes to get our fiscal house in order and about how to budget. families budget. businesses budget. our federal government should budget. we actually have a law that says we should budget. all we're saying is follow that law and that's why the short- term extension before you today. i'll let the rest of it speak for itself. >> thank you very much. mr. levin. >> first, welcome, mr. chairman. >> thank you. i think this is the first -- >> i think this is the first time i have been before you. the first time any of us has been in the chair. >> thank you. i hope i'll do good enough and make you want to come back. >> i'll come back whether i want to or not. \[laughter] >> we still we
right to work laws in indiana and michigan. in a statement, the afl-cio said -- republican lawmakers in virginia are sparking outrage for pushing through a controversial gerrymandering bill while one of its members was away. on monday, a federal holiday in the day of president obama's inauguration, the virginia state approved a measure to redraw the state's electoral map in a way that could turn the current 20- 20 split with democrats into a decisive republican majority. the bill was approved by one vote because democratic state senator henry marsh was out of state attending the inauguration in washington. a recent internal report by the republican state leadership committee hosted the party maintained its house majority by gerrymandering congressional districts in traditionally democratic states. and those are some of the headlines. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. we are broadcasting live from the sundance film festival in park city, utah. this week marks the 40th anniversary of roe v wade, the landmark supreme court ruling that
family for something like six months, but we know that she had had previous run-ins with the law. one assault charge against her. two restraining orders against her. but her attorney says, none of that has anything to do with the way she cared for this baby. listen. >> she is very experienced. never, a child or been alleged to have hurt a child. she would never hurt a child. >> but prosecutors say that this particular baby, one-year-old, had serious head injuries, internal bleeding, hemorrhaging, and several broken bones, shep. >> some of our viewers will remember the case of louise woodward in 1997, a british case. >> a lot of parallels here, not the least of which it took place in the boston area. lewis woodward was a teenage nanny. she was carrying for eight-month-old matthew ethan. very similar injuries. subdural hematoma was the technical word for the internal bleeding in the brain. lewis wood wavered was found guilty of second degree murder. she appeales that. the conviction was lessened to involuntary man slaughter, and she ultimately was released on time served, which was 279
trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades. it's disa pointing, but not surprising. the american people know gun ban dos not work. a sponsor of the proposed assault weapons ban, connecticut senator richard blumenthal next hour. what are the final battle lines? one has been eliminated. women are no longer banned from combat units. leon panetta issued the order in the last 30 minutes. >> therefore today general dempsey and i are pleased to announce that we are eliminating the direct ground combat exclusion rule for women. we are moving forward with a plan to eliminate all unnecessary gender-based barriers to serve. >> eliminating the ban will take time and the assessment phase. each branch will examine all the jobs and units not accepting women and then produce a timeline for integration. every three months, service leaders will have to check on their progress and if it's found they are not suited for a unit, an exemption may be sought. one part of the air force, they have been side by side, fighting on the ground for more than a decade. >> this is tech sergeant andre
the country to oppose the white house effort to reform the nation's gun laws. at demonstrations in pennsylvania and ohio, gun owners pilloried calls for stricter gun control. >> no law put on law abiding citizens has ever deterred crime. they're going to take my gun so i can get shot. >> my thoughts is, tell the leftwing liberal idiots in washington to leave our guns alone. we're not hurting anything. it is the criminals. deal with the criminals, not the law abiding citizens. >> the pro-gun rallies also coincided with a series of nationwide gun shows where at least five people were wounded when their firearms accidentally went off. in north carolina, three people were injured when a shotgun accidentally fired as its owner removed it from its case. another gun owner accidentally shot himself in indianapolis, while an ohio a gun show attendee was injured by stray bullet. president obama is set to publicly take the oath of office today at his second term inauguration in washington. obama gathered with his family sunday in the blue room of the white house to privately recite the 35-
rights must be absolute, our laws fair, our national beauty preserved, the powerful must not persecute the weak, and human dignity must be enhanced. we have learned that more is not necessarily better, that even our great nation has its recognized limits, and that we can neither answer all questions nor solve all problems. we cannot afford to do everything, nor can we afford to lack boldness as we meet the future. so, together, in a spirit of individual sacrifice for the common good, we must simply do our best. our nation can be strong abroad only if it is strong at home. and we know that the best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation. to be true to ourselves, we must be true to others. we will not behave in foreign places so as to violate our rules and standards here at home, for we know that the trust which our nation earns is essential to our strength. the world itself is now dominated by a new spirit. peoples more numerous and more politically aware are craving, and now demanding, their place in the sun--not j
has failed to respond to a terrorist attack appropriately, treated as a law enforcement and diplomatic issue rather than it is the security issue that it is. at its core, this is yet another reflection of president obama's schizophrenic counterterrorism policy. the same administration that unapologetically reins down drone attacks on al qaeda affiliates in pakistan, yemen, will not use other counterterrorism resources to identify, locate and detain the terrorists involved in the death of our ambassador and others in libya. this inconsistent policy may stem from the president's hasty campaign promise to shut down guantanamo bay, gitmo, prematurely transfer detention facilities in iraq and afghanistan. in doing so the president effectively ended america's ability to detain and interrogate terrorists, depriving the f.b.i., the c.i.a. and other agencies of critical opportunities to obtain information on al qaeda networks. today, as the case of benghazi suspect harzi, has demonstrated, the united states is completely reliant on the cooperation of host countries to detain on our behalf and s
will not stand in the way of the bill becoming law. broadly speaking, i will point to what i said, which is the president's position is we have to remove these damaging fights over fulfilling our obligations to pare bills from the process -- we have to remove them entirely, because they are not helpful to our economic growth or the middle class and they create terrible uncertainty for businesses. we can continue to engage and we will with members of congress over the need to produce our deficit in a balanced way. the president has put forward plans that demonstrate the fact that he's willing to compromise, and is willing to meet republicans halfway on these issues and he will continue to do that. but the debt ceiling needs to not be part of that, because it is terrible for the economy and seems to be bad politics. host: white house press secretary jay carney. let's hear purcellville in broken arrow, oklahoma, republican. what is your advice to republicans for the second obama administration? caller: i love c-span and i am so glad that you have this live call-in talk show from individuals
threats or exactly how many law enforcement officers would be working during the inauguration. >> the secret service never talks about threat levels. i mean, i can say we have a lot of people that are assessing a lot of information. >> reporter: more than ever, cameras are being sed to pinpoint issues. and if problems are spotted by someone at macc, information can be pulled up here and police can be sent right away. >> if every law enforcement entity, we have 42 partners here. every law enforcement entity, every transportation entity, everybody that's got cameras, we're utilizing. so it's quite -- i don't want to estimate, but it's a large number. >> reporter: because of cell service issues last inauguration, these temporary towers have been erected. officials hope spectators will help them spot any issues by using special smartphone apps, facebook, and twitter. all eyes will be on social media. >> all of the agencies involved now have a very robust social media capability we'll be watching closely. we have created our own, so we have apps, mobile apps and a lot of things. >>

, that delegate votes won in a primary wouldn't be cast as allocated by state law. >> let me stop you here. you, specifically say "primary." you believe it's different for caucus states? >> well, in a caucus situation, the people are actually elected as delegates, in some way, under state party rules. so it really wasn't an issue with respect to caucus states, because caucus and convention states, if there's no primary involved, the delegates that are elected get to vote the way they want, and candidates run people for delegates and those delegates win. the issue, however, was settled in the tampa convention, and the idea that candidates could disavow and remove dually elected delegates from the states was pulled out at the last minute, so that's not one of the points at issue, currently, in matters that relate to the republican rules. i think the real issue is, will the republican party remove the power grabs, which ben ginsburg, who you mentioned, oversaw in the convention rules committee, and i'm submitting a motion to repeal all those power grabs that can be repealed, by the republican nati
